I am experiencing a problem with the Grease Pencil where there will be a delay between my stylus stroke and the stroke that is actually drawn in Blender. I would start to draw something with the Grease Pencil, but the stroke doesn't actually start until a little past my starting point. This is really annoying especially when trying to draw connecting lines because a small gap will be present between the two lines where the delay occurred.

How can I fix this problem? Thank you for your help!

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the suggestion! This was exactly my question, but unfortunately it didn't solve my issue. Thanks though! $\endgroup$ – Microbob Oct 29 '18 at 15:26
  • $\begingroup$ I assume you are using Windows? It's not working for me either. I'm not even sure whether it's a time delay or some fixed pixel distance (some drag threshold). Using Blender on Linux might be a workaround (works for me). $\endgroup$ – handle Oct 29 '18 at 16:14
  • $\begingroup$ I've resorted to a similar solution. Hopefully Blender fixes this soon. Is there a workaround with using a Wacom Tablet? $\endgroup$ – Microbob Oct 29 '18 at 16:30
  • $\begingroup$ It appears to have been fixed (works for me): developer.blender.org/T55589 $\endgroup$ – handle Jan 26 at 1:28
